“I’ve been working to help people think about their health and their bodies in a more empowered way. What you may not know is that from the time I was a teenager I’ve been enthralled with all things spiritual and metaphysical — the forces that cannot be seen but that influence us profoundly. Though conversations about angels, reincarnation, and Spirit guides are not standard in the hospitals and clinics where I’ve spent decades, I have come to the conclusion that life without spiritual understanding, especially when you’re faced with pain or loss, is very difficult. Unless we understand that there is a much bigger picture that requires faith, we are too often left feeling like powerless victims of forces beyond our control. We slowly start to believe that “Life’s a bitch and then you die.”

“The reason why it’s so important to avoid negativity is because it disconnects you from your power to make a positive change in the world and in your life. It does just the opposite. It deadens and renders us powerless. How can we possibly make a difference in the face of so much pain and destruction? It’s paralyzing to stay in this low-vibration state. So you must do whatever it takes to raise your vibration to a higher level characterized by optimism, hope, and joy.”
